The Nobel For Lying

The lying windbag Al Gore accepted his award today, and bloviated more of the same hogwash he has been selling for the past few years. It is difficult to listen to him for more than a few minutes without retching. Check out what he said last year, from Deroy Murdock's column over at NRO:

When Nobel laureate Albert Gore Jr. collects his Peace Prize in Oslo today, he should tell the gathered Norwegians exactly what he meant when he remarked about global warming: “Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem,” Gore told Grist in the May 9, 2006 Grist Magazine. “Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.”

In other words, it's okay to lie about the facts if it gets you the attention you want. Read the rest of the article, Murdock shoots Gore down again and again. Don't look for any of this on your network news or in your newspaper, though. It's buried along with the surge success and the roaring economy.
